12:50 <tunas> Self-driving cars are cool until you realise they stop for pedestrians and they can walk towards you, making your car reverse, so they walk you and your car back home. 12:51 <tunas> The prospect of a smug fifth-grade student just walking menacingly towards me and my car retreating in fear is... terrifying.
10:26:27 <Kneezle|Web> Can you imagine? I would have had to spend this 40-minute walk actually enjoying the sun. Instead of hanging out with you people 10:26:41 <Kneezle|Web> That wasn't even sarcastic, I'm not a big fan of the outdoors. 10:26:41 <~ahriman> haha 10:26:46 <~ahriman> the horror! 10:27:14 <Kneezle|Web> I realized, that I was spending too much time indoors, when at one point my tired instinct was to look for a dimmer switch to turn the sun down 10:27:29 <Kneezle|Web> Needless to say I didn't find one 10:28:05 <~ahriman> hahaha! 10:29:21 <Kneezle|Web> At least to my credit, I didn't try to turn the sun off 10:29:27 <Kneezle|Web> I knew I couldn't do that for some reason 10:29:42 <Kneezle|Web> But when you're grasping around the air for a dimmer switch, you need to rethink your life 10:29:54 <~ahriman> i've actually done that before 10:30:09 <Kneezle|Web> Lol you too?? 10:30:17 <Kneezle|Web> I thought that was something unique to my stupidity
